[0022] 实施例一 [0022] Example a

[0023] 如图2所示,其为本申请实施例一提出的信息提供方法流程图,其具体处理过程如下: [0023] 2, which is a flowchart of embodiments of the present application proposed a method of providing information, the specific process is as follows:

[0024] 步骤21,处理服务器接收到携带有搜索条件的信息搜索请求后,在自身存储的各信息中,搜索满足所述搜索条件的信息。 [0024] Step 21, the server process receives the message carrying the request for the search with a search condition, the information itself stored in each of the information satisfies the search condition of the search.

[0025] 用户在进行信息搜索时,可以先设置搜索条件,当该用户确认搜索(例如用户点击了网页中的“搜索”按键),那么该用户使用的用户设备就会将携带有该搜索条件的信息搜索请求发送给搜索页面服务器,搜索页面服务器可以根据各合并服务器的当前负载情况,选择一个合并服务器,然后按照合并服务器格式要求将该信息搜索请求发送给选择出的合并服务器,此外,搜索页面服务器也可以先按照合并服务器格式要求将该信息搜索请求发送给负载均衡设备,负载均衡设备根据各合并服务器的当前负载情况,选择一个合并服务器,然后将该信息搜索请求发送给选择出的合并服务器。 When the [0025] user information during the search, you can set the search condition, when the user confirms the search (for example, the user clicks on the web page of the "search" button), then the user devices used by that user will be carrying this search information search request to the search page server, the server may search page according to the current load of each server consolidation, select a merge server, and the server according to the merge request to the selected format of the merge server information search request, in addition, search server pages may be combined according to the required format server information search request to the load balancing device, load balancing device according to the current load of each server consolidation, select a merge server, and the information search request to the selected merger server.

[0026] 合并服务器接收到该信息搜索请求后,从每一列处理服务器中分别选择一个处理服务器,若信息搜索系统共包含MXN个处理服务器,则合并服务器共选择出N个处理服务器。 [0026] Merge server after receiving the information search request from the processing server selected in each column a server process, respectively, if the MXN information search system contains a processing server, the server were combined N processing server selected. 其中,为了实现负载均衡,每列服务器中的各个处理服务器被合并服务器选取的概率相同。 Wherein, in order to achieve load balancing, the same probability of each column of each server is the processing server selected merge server. 合并服务器将接收到的信息搜索请求分别发送给选择出的每个处理服务器。 Merge server received the search request information are transmitted to each of the selected processing server. 处理服务器接收到合并服务器发送的信息搜素请求后,在自身存储的各信息中搜索满足该信息搜素请求中携带的搜索条件的各信息。 After receiving the information processing server search elements combined request sent by the server, the information itself stored in the search for the respective information satisfies the search information element carried in the request search.

[0027] 本申请实施例一中,用户设置的搜索条件包含:搜索关键词和/或用户针对信息的至少一个属性分别设置的限制条件。 [0027] In an embodiment of the present application, the search condition set by a user comprising: search keyword limits and / or the at least one user attribute information for each set. 也就是说,搜索条件可以只包含搜索关键词,也可以只包含限制条件,还可以包含搜索关键词和上述限制条件。 In other words, the search criteria can only contain keyword search, you can only contain restrictions, it can also contain search keywords and the above restrictions. 信息的属性可以但不限于为类目属性、发布时间属性等。 Attribute information may be, but are not limited to a category attribute, Published attributes. 例如,用户在电子商务网站中进行信息搜索时,若想要在“女装”类目下搜索“蓝色毛衣”,则输入的搜索关键词为“蓝色毛衣”,针对信息的类目属性设置的限制条件为“女装”。 For example, when users search for information in e-commerce site, if you want to search for "blue sweater" in the "Women" category, enter the search keyword "blue sweater", set for the category attribute information restrictions as "women." 此外,用户也可以针对多个属性分别设置限制条件。 Further, the user may be provided separately for a plurality of attribute constraints. 例如,用户不仅针对信息的类目属性设置了限制条件,还针对发布时间属性设置了限制条件。 For example, users not only for the category attribute information set restrictions, also set time limits for the release property.

[0028] 信息搜索系统预先将所有信息分配给各处理服务器,同一列的处理服务器存储相同的信息,不同列的处理服务器存储不同的信息。 Information [0028] The information search system of all previously assigned to each information processing server, the processing server storing the same in the same column, different from the processing server information storing different columns. 将信息分配给各处理服务器之后,针对每个处理服务器,分别建立搜索关键词单元的倒排表、限制条件的倒排表、信息的正排表,也就是说处理服务器中至少存储有下述内容:各个搜索关键词单元的倒排表、各个限制条件的倒排表和信息的正排表。 After the allocation information to each processing server, each processing server for, respectively, create an inverted keyword table search unit, posting list of constraints, positive displacement information table, that stores at least the following processing server content: positive displacement meter inverted table information and posting list of each search keyword elements of the various constraints.

[0029] 其中,搜索关键词单元的倒排表为各个搜索关键词单元与处理服务器中存储的各信息的信息标识之间的对应关系;限制条件的倒排表为各个限制条件与处理服务器中存储的各信息的信息标识之间的对应关系;信息的正排表为处理服务器中存储的各信息的标识与信息内容之间的对应关系,信息内容包含信息针对各个属性的属性值。 [0029] wherein, inverted keyword table search unit is a corresponding relationship between the identification information of each search keyword information of each of the processing units stored in the server; posting list restrictions limiting conditions for each processing server correspondence between the identification information of each information stored; n rows of the table information for the correspondence between the identifier and the information content of each information stored in the processing server, content information contains an attribute value for each attribute.

[0030] 处理服务器在搜索满足搜索条件的信息时,若搜索条件中只包含搜索关键词,则处理服务器将该搜索关键词划分为各搜索关键词单元,并针对划分出的每个搜索关键词单元,分别在搜索关键词单元的倒排表中查找该搜索关键词单元对应的各信息标识,然后根据查找到的每个信息标识,分别在信息的正排表中查找对应的信息内容,从而得到满足该搜索条件的各信息;若搜索条件中只包含限制条件,则处理服务器针对每个限制条件,分别在限制条件的倒排表中查找该限制条件对应的各信息标识,然后根据查找到的每个信息标识,分别在信息的正排表中查找对应的信息内容,从而得到满足该搜索条件的各信息;若搜索条件中包含搜索关键词和限制条件,则处理服务器将该搜索关键词划分为各搜索关键词单元,并针对划分出的每个搜索关键词单元,分 [0030] When the information processing server search are met, if the search condition includes only the search keyword, the server processing the search keyword is divided into units each search keyword, and keywords for each search partitioned units, respectively, to find each of the search keyword information identifying unit corresponds to the inverted keyword table search unit, and, respectively, to find information corresponding to the content in the positive displacement of the table information according to each identification information found to each obtained information satisfies the search condition; if the search criteria contains only constraints, then the processing server, information identifying each separately find the constraint limits corresponding to the inverted list for each constraint, then according to the found each identification information, respectively, to find information corresponding to the content in the positive displacement of the table information, whereby each information satisfies the search condition; if containing the search keyword search criteria and constraints, then the processing server search keyword each search key divided into units, and for each search keyword elements partitioned, divided 别在搜索关键词单元的倒排表中查找该搜索关键词单元对应的各信息标识,然后根据查找到的每个信息标识,分别在信息的正排表中查找对应的信息内容,此外,处理服务器还针对每个限制条件,分别在限制条件的倒排表中查找该限制条件对应的各信息标识,然后根据查找到的每个信息标识,分别在信息的正排表中查找对应的信息内容,处理服务器针对根据搜索关键词得到各信息以及根据限制条件得到的各信息取交集,最后得到的各信息即为满足该搜索条件的各信息。 Do not search through all the information identifying the cell corresponding to the search keyword in the inverted keyword table search unit, and, respectively, to find information corresponding to the content in the positive displacement of the table information according to each identification information to find, in addition, the processing the server also respectively locate information identifying each of the constraint limits corresponding to the inverted list for each constraint, then find information respectively corresponding to the content in the positive displacement of the table information according to each identification information found , each processing server to get information for each information as well as information obtained by the restrictions on the intersection according to the search keyword, all the resulting information shall meet the search criteria.

[0031] 此外,处理服务器在根据搜索关键词单元查找到信息后,还可以进行位置关系判断,具体的:查看该搜索关键词单元在查找到的信息中的位置是否和该搜索关键词单元在搜索关键词中的位置一致,若一致,则将该信息作为最终搜索到的信息,否则不将该信息作为最终搜索到的信息。 [0031] Further, the processing server to find the information unit based on the search keyword, the positional relationship can be determined, specifically: see if the position of the search key found in the cell information and the keyword searching unit the same search keyword in position, if the same, then the final information as information search, otherwise this information is not final as the information searched.

[0032] 步骤22,处理服务器根据搜索到的各信息针对确定出的合并属性的属性值,将搜索到的各信息进行合并,得到各搜索结果。 [0032] Step 22, the attribute values ​​of each processing server to search information for the determined combined attributes, each of the searched information combined to give each search result.

[0033] 本申请实施例一中,处理服务器确定合并属性的方式可以包含但不限于下述两种: [0033] In an embodiment of the present application embodiment, the processing server determines combined attributes may include, but is not limited to the way of the following two:

[0034] 确定方式一:预先在信息的各属性中设置指定属性,并将设置的该指定属性的属性标识保存在处理服务器中,处理服务器可以直接将保存的属性标识对应的指定属性确认为合并属性; [0034] a determined manner: attribute identifies the attribute corresponding to the specified attribute identifies the attribute specified in the preset attribute information, and sets the designated attribute stored in the processing server, the processing server may be directly stored as a combined acknowledgment Attributes;

[0035] 确定方式二:用户在进行信息搜索时,信息搜索的网页中为用户提供了信息的各属性的属性标识,用户可以在信息的各属性中选择一个属性作为合并属性,那么用户的信息搜索请求中除了携带有搜索条件外,还携带有用户选择的属性的属性标识,处理服务器将接收到的信息搜索请求中携带的属性标识对应的属性确认为合并属性。 [0035] The second approach to determine: a user information search is performed, web page information searchable attribute identifier provides users with each attribute information, the user can select an attribute in the attribute information as a combined property, the user information in addition to the search request carries a search condition, but also carries a user selected attribute identifies the attribute, the server will process the received information search request corresponding to the identifier carried in the attribute confirmation attribute is combined properties.

[0036] 此外,处理服务器也可以结合上述两种方式来确定合并属性,例如,处理服务器接收到用户的信息搜索请求后,先判断信息搜索请求中是否携带有属性标识,如果判断出携带有属性标识,则处理服务器将该属性标识对应的属性确认为合并属性,如果判断出未携带有属性标识,则处理服务器将预先保存的属性标识对应的指定属性确认为合并属性。 [0036] Further, the processing server may also be determined in conjunction with the above two properties combined, for example, the processing server information after receiving the user's search request, first determines whether the search request information carries identification attribute, if it is determined that carrying properties identification, the processing server corresponding to the attribute identifier of an attribute confirmation combined property, if it is determined that does not carry the identifier attribute, the attribute corresponding to the identifier of the specified property to the server is stored in advance as a binder attribute confirmation process.

[0037] 本申请实施例一中,所述合并属性可以但不限于为信息的发布方属性、信息的网站属性等,在电子商务网站中,所述合并属性还可以为商品的提供方属性(也可以称为商品的店铺属性)、商品的类目属性、商品的品牌属性等。 [0037] In an embodiment of the present application embodiment, the properties may be combined, without limitation, the publisher attribute, the attribute information for the website information, and the like, e-commerce site, the property may also be combined properties of the product providers ( attributes can also be called the shop), a category attribute of goods, commodities brand attributes.

[0038] 处理服务器对搜索到的信息进行合并时,可以将搜索到的所有信息进行合并,此时,先确定搜索到的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值,然后在搜索到的各信息中,将合并属性的属性值相同的信息合并为一个搜索结果。 When the [0038] processing server to search information to merge all the information search can be merged at this time, each of the first information is determined to search for the attribute value of the combined attribute, then the search information to each , the same property values ​​combined into one attribute information of the search results. 例如,在电子商务网站中,处理服务器搜索到的商品信息包含Al、A2、B1、B2、Cl、C2,合并属性为商品的店铺属性,该合并属性的属性值为商品所属店铺的店铺标识,处理服务器确定出商品信息Al和A2对应的店铺标识均为A,商品信息BI和B2对应的店铺标识均为B,商品信息Cl和C2对应的店铺标识均为C,因此处理服务器将商品信息Al和A2合并为一个搜索结果,将商品信息BI和B2合并为一个搜索结果,将商品信息Cl和C2合并为一个搜索结果。 For example, in e-commerce sites, the processing server information containing the searched product Al, A2, B1, B2, Cl, C2, combined attribute store product properties, the properties of the combined attribute is store ID of the store item belongs, commodity information processing server determines that Al and A2 are the corresponding store ID a, product information corresponding to BI and B2 store ID are B, Cl and C2 commodity information corresponding to the store ID are C, with the product information processing server Al and A2 into one search result, the commodity information BI and B2 are combined into a search result, the commodity information into one of Cl and C2 search results.

[0039] 步骤23,处理服务器将得到的各搜索结果发送给合并服务器。 [0039] Step 23, each search processing server transmits the results obtained to merge server.

[0040] 本申请实施例一提出,处理服务器待发送给合并服务器的各搜索结果中可能包含较多的信息,网页可能无法同时显示这些信息,因此,处理服务器在将搜索结果发送给合并服务器之前,可以先针对待发送给合并服务器的每个搜索结果,分别确定该搜索结果包含的各信息按照预设的排序规则进行排序后的前第三规定数目个信息,然后在该搜索结果包含的各信息中,只保留确定出的第三规定数目个信息,即删除除确定出的信息之外的其他信息,然后处理服务器将处理后的各搜索结果发送给所述合并服务器。 Thus, the processing server before the server transmits the search results to the combined [0040] Example embodiments of the present application proposed a processing server to be sent to each search result server consolidation may contain more information, such information may not display the page at the same time, , you can be sent to each search result for server consolidation, after each third provisions of the preceding information contained in the search results are sorted according to a preset number of information collation are determined, then the search results is included in each information, leaving only the determined number of the third predetermined number of information, i.e., information other than information determined deleted, then each search processing server transmits the processed results to the merge server.

[0041] 其中,上述第三规定数目可以预先设置,例如,设置为一个,此时处理服务器得到的搜索结果中只包含排序后的第一个信息,若设置为两个,则处理服务器得到的搜索结果中只包含排序后的前两个信息。 [0041] wherein the third predetermined number may be preset, for example, as a set, then the search results obtained by the processing server contains only the first sorting information, if set to two, then the processing server obtained Search results include only the first two messages sorted.

[0042] 步骤24,合并服务器将接收到的各搜索结果提供给用户。 [0042] Step 24, the combined each search server received result to the user.

[0043] 合并服务器接收到各处理服务器发送的搜索结果后,可以直接将接收到各搜索结果提供给用户;此外,由于合并服务器接收到的各搜索结果中,可能存在包含的信息针对合并属性的属性值相同的搜索结果,例如,合并属性为信息的发布方属性,第一列的各处理服务器中存储有发布方标识为a的信息,第二列的各服务器中也存储有发布方标识为a的信息,那么第一列的处理服务器和第二列的处理服务器均向合并服务器发送包含的信息针对发布方属性的属性值为a的搜索结果,此时,合并服务器接收到各搜索结果后,可以先根据接收到的各搜索结果包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值,将接收到的各搜索结果进行合并,然后将合并得到的各搜索结果提供给用户。 After [0043] Merge server receives the search result of each processing server sent directly received each search result to the user; furthermore, since the merge server receives each search result, there may be information included for the combined properties Search results for the same attribute value, e.g., merge attribute is attribute information of the issuer, each process server is stored in a first column of a issuer identification information, the second column of each server is also stored as issuer identification after a message, then the processing server of the first column and the second column comprising information processing server are sent to the server for the publisher merge attribute property value of a search result, at this time, the server receives the merge each search result may contain first search information for each attribute value of the combined attribute, the received combine the results of each search result according to the received, combined to give each of the search results is then provided to the user.

[0044] 合并服务器对接收到的搜索结果进行合并时,可以针对接收到的所有搜索结果进行合并,此时合并服务器可以先针对接收到的每个搜索结果,分别确定该搜素结果包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值,并在接收到的各搜索结果中,将包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值相同的各搜索结果合并为一个搜索结果。 [0044] The combined results of the search server received when combined, may be combined for all the received search results, where the combined first server for each search result received, information of the search elements are contained in the results of determination and each of the received search result, the attribute information contained in the merged property value for the same attribute value of the combined attribute, each search result is a combined search results.

[0045] 合并服务器将搜索结果提供给用户时,可以将搜索结果通过搜索页面服务器发送给该用户使用的用户设备,该用户设备通过网页浏览器,将接收到的各搜索结果在网页中进行展现。 When [0045] Merge server the search results provided to the user, search results may be by sending a search page server to the user equipment used by the user, each search result to the user device through a Web browser, the received is displayed in page .

[0046] 现有技术中,用户在电子商务网站中进行商品信息的搜索时,各处理服务器将搜索到的商品信息发送给合并服务器,合并服务器接收到的商品信息为:A1、B1、Cl、A2、DUC2、B2、D2。 [0046] In the prior art, when a user searches for the product information in the e-commerce sites, each processing server to the searched product information to merge server, product information received by the server is merged: A1, B1, Cl, A2, DUC2, B2, D2. 其中,商品信息Al、A2均为店铺A的商品信息,商品信息B1、B2均为店铺B的商品信息,商品信息Cl、C2均为店铺C的商品信息,商品信息Dl、D2均为店铺D的商品信息,合并服务器将各商品信息发送给该用户使用的用户设备,该用户设备通过网页浏览器,将接收到的各商品信息在网页中进行展现,商品信息在网页中的展现方式如图3所示,如果用户想要查看同一店铺的各商品,则需要逐个对商品信息进行点击及浏览操作,浪费了较多的处理资源,用户的体验较差。 Wherein the product information Al, A2 in the store A are the product information, product information B1, B2 are commodity information store B, the commodity information Cl, C2 C are stores commodity information, the commodity information Dl, D2 are shops D the commodity information server transmits the combined information to the user of each product used by the user equipment, each product information of the user device through a web browser, the received page is displayed in the commodity information representations in FIG page 3, if the user wants to view various goods of the same shop, you need to click one by one for product information and browsing operation, a waste of processing resources, poor user experience more.

[0047] 而本申请实施例一中,各处理服务器将搜索到的商品信息根据店铺属性进行合并,得到各搜索结果后发送给合并服务器,合并服务器再根据店铺属性,对接收到的各搜索结果进行合并,最终得到的搜索结果为:A (Al、A2)、B (B1、B2)、C (Cl、C2)、D (Dl、D2),合并服务器将各搜索结果通过搜索页面服务器发送给该用户使用的用户设备,该用户设备通过网页浏览器,将接收到的各搜索结果在网页中进行展现,搜索结果在网页中的展现方式如图4所示,如果用户想要查看同一店铺的各商品,则可以直接查看各个搜索结果,因此有效地节省了处理资源,提高了用户的体验。 [0047] Application of the present embodiment and the commodity information in an embodiment, each processing server searches for the shop to be combined according to the attribute, the server transmits to the combined results obtained after each search, each search result and then combined in accordance with the shop server attributes received to merge the search results finally obtained as: a (Al, A2), B (B1, B2), C (Cl, C2), D (Dl, D2), combined the server each search result to the search page server the user device users, each search result to the user device via a web browser, will be received in a web page to show, to show the way in the search results pages shown in Figure 4, if the user wants to see the same store each item, you can view each search result, thus effectively saving processing resources, improve the user experience.

[0048] 本申请实施例一提出,合并服务器待发送给用户的各搜索结果中可能包含较多的信息,网页可能无法同时显示这些信息,因此合并服务器在将搜索结果发送给合并服务器之前,可以针对待发送给用户的每个搜索结果,分别确定该搜索结果包含的各信息按照预设的排序规则进行排序后的前第三规定数目个信息,然后在该搜索结果包含的各信息中,只保留确定出的第三规定数目个信息,即删除除确定出的信息之外的其他信息。 Example [0048] The present application proposes a combined user to be transmitted to the server each search result may contain more information, such information may not display the page at the same time, so the merge server before sending the search results to the consolidated servers and for each search result to be transmitted to the user, determined individually for each of the information contained in the search results before the third predetermined number of information sorted according to a predetermined sorting rule, then each of the information included in the search result, only determined to retain the provisions of a third of the number of information, that information other than the determined information deleted.

[0049]为了在搜索结果中显示该搜索结果针对合并属性的相关信息,本申请实施例一提出,处理服务器还可以在将搜索结果发送给合并服务器之前,收集该搜索结果针对所述合并属性的相关信息,并将收集到的相关信息携带在搜索结果中发送给合并服务器。 [0049] related to the search result information for the combined properties of an embodiment of the present application proposed, prior to the processing server may also be combined to the server transmits the search results, the search results are displayed in the collected search results for the combined properties related information and the collected information is sent to carry consolidate servers in the search results. 例如,当合并属性为商品的店铺属性时,可以针对每个搜索结果,收集店铺相关信息(如搜索到的商品信息中属于该店铺的商品信息的数量,搜索到的商品信息中属于该店铺的各商品信息的销售情况,搜索到的商品信息中属于该店铺的各商品信息的价格区间等),处理服务器将收集到的店铺相关信息携带在搜索结果中返回给合并服务器。 For example, when the attribute is combined store product properties, for each search result can collect information about the store (e.g., the number of items of information to the shop search the item information belongs, the searched product information belonging to this shop sales of each product information, search for product information in the shop belonging to the price range of each product information, etc.), the server processing the collected information to carry back to the shop server consolidation in the search results.

[0050] 合并服务器在将搜索结果提供给用户之前,可以对各搜索结果中携带的针对所述合并属性的相关信息进行汇总,然后再提供给用户。 [0050] Merge server prior to the search results to the user, the relevant information may be aggregated for each of the search results for the combined attributes carried in, and then provided to the user. 例如,合并服务器将搜索结果I和搜索结果2合并为一个搜索结果,合并服务器对搜索结果I中的店铺相关信息和搜索结果2中的店铺相关信息进行汇总(如属于该店铺的商品信息的数量需要相加,属于该店铺的各商品信息的销售情况需要相加,属于该店铺的各商品信息的价格区间需要取并集),然后合并服务器将携带有汇总后的店铺相关信息的搜索结果提供给用户。 For example, server consolidation search result I and the search results 2 combined as a search result, merge server stores information 2 search result I the store information and the search results summary amounts (e.g., is an item of information to the store is we want to add, that belong to the store's sales of each product information requires the addition, the price range of each product information belonging to the shop needs to take and set), then the combined server will store carrying search results relevant information provided after the summary to the user.

[0051] 此外,本申请实施例一中,信息搜索系统除了包含合并服务器和处理服务器之外,还可以进一步包含至少一个缓存服务器。 [0051] Further, in an embodiment of the present application embodiment, in addition to the information search system comprising a server and merge processing servers, but also may further comprise at least one cache server. 如图5所示,合并服务器得到待发送给用户的各搜索结果后,可以将搜索条件和各搜索结果对应保存在缓存服务器中,合并服务器后续在接收到其他用户的信息搜索请求后,可以先在缓存服务器中查看是否存储有此次接收到的信息搜索请求中携带的搜索条件对应的搜索结果,如果存储有,则直接将存储的、与该搜索条件对应的搜索结果提供给用户,而无需由处理服务器进行搜索,从而节省了较多的处理资源,也提高了信息搜索的效率。 As shown in FIG After combined to give outgoing server each search result to the user 5, and each may be a search condition corresponding to the search results stored in the cache server, upon receiving a subsequent merge server to another user's search request information, to be in the cache server stores the search results to see if the search request information carried in the received search conditions corresponding to the storage if there is, then directly to the store, providing the user with search results corresponding to the search condition, without search by a process server, thus saving more processing resources, but also improve the efficiency of information search. 其中,为了减轻缓存服务器的负荷,可以设置每个搜索条件的保存时间长度,若超过了该时间长度,则缓存服务器删除存储的该搜索条件以及对应的搜索结果。 Wherein, in order to reduce the load of a cache server, the length of storage time may be set for each search condition, exceeds the length of time, and a search condition corresponding to the search result is stored in the cache server to delete.

[0052] 由上述处理过程可知,本申请实施例技术方案中,处理服务器接收到携带有搜索条件的信息搜索请求后,在自身存储的各信息中,搜索满足所述搜索条件的信息,处理服务器不再直接将搜索到的信息发送给合并服务器,而是根据搜索到的各信息针对合并属性的属性值,将搜索到的各信息进行合并,然后将得到的各搜索结果发送给合并服务器,合并服务器将接收到的各搜索结果提供给用户,那么用户在查看信息时,就可以不用逐个查看各个信息,而是查看合并后的各个搜索结果,由于搜索结果是根据信息针对合并属性的属性值进行合并的,因此,当用户想要针对上述合并属性查看信息时,就能够快速、准确的在得到的各搜索结果中查找到自己想要的信息,避免了用户反复的针对信息进行点击或浏览等动作,从而节省了较多的处理资源,也提高了 [0052] From the above process, the technical embodiment of the present application, the processing server receives the message carrying the request for the search with a search condition, the information itself stored in each of the search information satisfying the search condition, the processing server not directly transmit the searched information to merge server, but each information searched according to the attribute value of the combined attribute, the search for the respective information to be combined, and then each search result to be obtained merge server, and the combined each server receives the search results to the user, then the user when viewing a message, you can not look at each individual information, but to see each search result of the merger, because the search result is the combined property value for the property based on the information the merger, therefore, when the user wants to view property information for the above merger, will be able to quickly and accurately locate in the search results to the information they want to avoid a repeat of the user to click or browse for information action, thereby saving more processing resources, but also improve 用户的信息查找效率。 User information search efficiency.

[0053] 本申请实施例提出了两种较佳地的信息提供方式,下面分别进行介绍。 [0053] The present embodiment proposes the application information of two ways Preferably, the following were introduced.

[0054] 实施例二(信息提供方式一) [0054] Second Embodiment (an information providing mode)

[0055] 由于网页中能够显示的信息数目有限,而处理服务器根据用户的搜索条件搜索到的信息可能非常多,因此,处理服务器在根据搜索条件搜索到各信息之后,可以将搜索到的信息中的部分信息进行合并。 [0055] Since a page in a limited number of information can be displayed, and the processing server searched according to the search condition the user information may be very large, therefore, the processing server after the search to the respective information according to the search condition, can be searched information some of the information merge. 具体地,处理服务器在搜索到的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值中,选取第一规定数目个属性值,并针对选取出的每个属性值,分别将针对所述合并属性的属性值为该属性值的各信息合并为一个搜索结果。 Specifically, in the information processing server to search for the attribute value of the combined attribute, a first predetermined number of selected attribute values, and selecting a value for each attribute, the attribute values ​​for each attribute of the combined information for each attribute value into one search result. [0056] 其中,处理服务器选取第一规定数目个属性值时,可以先按照预设的排序规则,对搜索到的各信息进行排序,然后根据搜索到的各信息的排序结果,对搜索到的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值进行排序,根据各属性值的排序结果,选取第一规定数目个属性值(如选取前第一规定数目个属性值)。 [0056] wherein, when the processing server selecting a first predetermined number of attribute values ​​may be preset according to the sorting rule, for each sort of information searched and sorted according to the results of the search information, to search each attribute value information is sorted for the combined attribute, each attribute value according to a ranking of the results, selecting a first predetermined number of attribute values ​​(e.g., before selecting a first predetermined number of attribute values).

[0057] 搜索结果中的各信息在该搜索结果中的排序方式可以与合并之前的排序方式一致,例如,搜索结果中包含的信息为A、B,在合并之前按照预设的排序规则排序后,A排在B的前面,那么在该搜索结果中,A也排在B之前。 [0057] Each information in the search results are sorted search results may be consistent with the previous merge sort, e.g., the information contained in the search results for the A, B, sorted according to preset sorting rule before the merged , a is ahead of B, then the search result, a is ahead of B also.

[0058] 所述排序规则是预先设定的,可以根据各信息的某个指定属性的属性值进行排序。 [0058] The collation is set in advance, it can be sorted according to a given attribute value of each attribute information. 例如,按照信息的发布时间进行排序,在电子商务网站中,可以按照商品的销量或价格进行排序。 For example, sorted by release time information in the e-commerce site can be sorted by sales volume or price of goods.

[0059] 例如,处理服务器搜索到的商品信息为A1、A2、B1、B2、C1、C2、D1、D2,按照商品的销量进行排序后的结果为Dl、A2、D2、C2、B1、Cl、Al、B2,所述合并属性为商品的店铺属性,处理服务器根据各信息的排序结果,对各信息针对店铺属性的属性值进行排序,得到的排序结果为D、A、C、B,第一规定数目为3,则处理服务器选择前3个属性值D、A、C,处理服务器在搜索到的各信息中,将针对店铺属性的属性值为D的各信息合并为搜索结果D(D1、D2),将针对店铺属性的属性值为A的各信息合并为搜索结果A (A2、A1),将针对店铺属性的属性值为C的各信息合并为搜索结果C(C2、C1),那么最终得到的搜索结果即为D(D1、D2)、A(A2、Al)、(C2、C1)。 Result of [0059] For example, the processing server to search for product information as A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2, D1, D2, sorted according to sales of merchandise is Dl, A2, D2, C2, B1, Cl , Al, B2, store the attribute is combined product properties, sorted according to the results of the processing server information, sorting information for each attribute value for the attribute store, sort result is obtained D, a, C, B, of 3 is a predetermined number, before the processing server selection attribute values ​​D 3, each of the information a, C, each processing server to the information search, the attribute value of D for the combined store attribute as a search result D (Dl , D2 of), the attribute information of each attribute value store a combined search results a (A2, A1), the combined value of each information C as a search result C (C2, C1) stores the attribute property, then finally obtained search result is D (D1, D2), a (A2, Al), (C2, C1).

[0060] 此外,由于网页中能够显示的搜索结果数目有限,而合并服务器接收到的搜索结果可能非常多,因此,合并服务器也可以将接收到的搜索结果中的部分搜索结果进行合并。 Part Search Results Results [0060] Further, since the search result web page can be displayed in a limited number, incorporated into the server receives the search results may be very large, therefore, the server may be combined in the received merged. 具体地,合并服务器先在接收到的搜索结果包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值中,选取第二规定数目个属性值,然后针对选取出的每个属性值,分别将包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值为该属性值的各搜索结果合并为一个搜索结果。 Specifically, information, server information combining the received first search result contains the value of the attribute of the combined attribute, a second predetermined number of selected attribute values, and attribute values ​​selected for each out, for each comprising the combined value of the attribute of the attribute of the attribute value of each search result is a search result is combined. 合并服务器得到合并后的各搜索结果后,可以按照预设的排序规则对搜索结果中的各信息进行排序。 After the merger the server gets each search result of the merger, each information can sort the search results according to the preset sorting rule.

[0061] 其中,合并服务器在选取第二规定数目个属性值时,可以针对接收到的每个搜索结果,分别确定该搜索结果包含的各信息按照预设的排序规则进行排序后的第一个信息,然后按照预设的排序规则,将确定出的各信息进行排序,根据确定出的各信息的排序结果,对确定出的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值进行排序,再根据各属性值的排序结果,选取第二规定数目个属性值。 After the first [0061] wherein, when selecting the second server consolidation predetermined number of attribute values, for each search result may be received, determined individually for each search result contains information sorted according to a predetermined sorting rule information, and according to a preset sorting rule, each of the determined information is sorted according to the determined results of sorting information, the information determined for each sort the merged property value for the attribute, and then in accordance with various properties sorting result values, select the second predetermined number of attribute values.

[0062] 例如,合并服务器接收到的各搜索结果为B (B1、B3)、A (A2、Al)、C (C4、C2)、D (Dl)、A(A15、A10)、C(C17、C20)、E(E2、E7),由于每个搜索结果中包含的商品信息均是按照商品的销量进行排序的,因此,合并服务器直接从各搜索结果中分别提取出商品信息B1、A2、C4、D1、A15、C17、E2,然后合并服务器再按照商品的销量,将提取出的各信息进行排序,得到A15、B1、A2、C4、C17、E2、D1,所述合并属性为商品的店铺属性,合并服务器根据各信息的排序结果,对各信息针对店铺属性的属性值进行排序,排序结果为A、B、C、E、D,第二规定数目为4,则合并服务器选择前4个属性值A、B、C、E。 [0062] For example, each search result merge server receives for B (B1, B3), A (A2, Al), C (C4, C2), D (Dl), A (A15, A10), C (C17 , C20), E (E2, E7), since the product information are included in the sales of goods ordered by each of the search results, and therefore, the combined extracts were server directly out from each search result item information B1, A2, C4, D1, A15, C17, E2, and then combined again in accordance with the sales of commodity servers, each of the extracted information is sorted afford A15, B1, A2, C4, C17, E2, D1, the merge attribute for an item of store properties, combined according to the ranking results of the server information, sorting information for each attribute value for the attribute store, sort results as a, B, C, E, D, a second predetermined number of first 4, 4 merge server selection attribute values ​​A, B, C, E.

[0063] 本申请实施例二中,第一规定数目和第二规定数目可以是由当前网页的页数和网页能够显示的信息数目决定的。 Example II [0063] embodiment of the present application, the first number and the second predetermined number may be a predetermined number of pages of the current page and the page number of information capable of being displayed is determined. 若当前网页的页数为n,网页能够显示的信息数目为K,则第一规定数目可以为nXK,第二规定数目可以为K,合并服务器选取第二规定数目个属性值时,可以先去除前(nl)K个属性值,然后再选取前K个属性值,即选取排序后的第(n-1)K-1个属性值到第nK个属性值。 If the pages of the current page is n, the number of information pages that can be displayed is K, the first predetermined number may be NXK, the second predetermined number may be a K, merge server selecting a second predetermined number of attribute values, can first be removed of (n-1) before (NL) of K attribute values, the attribute value and then select the first K, i.e., the selected sort attribute values ​​K-1 to the second nK attribute values. 例如,若当前网页的页数为1,网页能够显示的信息数目为40,则第一规定数目为40,即处理服务器选取排序后的前40个属性值,第二规定数目为40,即合并服务器选取前40个属性值,若当前网页的页数为2,网页能够显示的信息数目为40,则第一规定数目为80,即处理服务器选取排序后的前80个属性值,第二规定数目为40,即合并服务器选取排序后的第41个属性值至第80个属性值。 For example, if the pages of the current page is 1, the number of information can be displayed as web page 40, the first predetermined number is 40, i.e., the processing server selection attribute values ​​sorted first 40, the second predetermined number is 40, i.e., combined selection attribute value before the server 40, if the pages of the current page is 2, the number of information can be displayed as web page 40, the first predetermined number is 80, i.e., the processing server selection attribute values ​​sorted first 80, the second predetermined number 40, i.e., merge server selected attribute value of 41 to 80 sorted attribute values.

[0064] 如图6所示,其为本申请实施例二提出的信息提供方式一的具体实现流程示意图,其具体处理流程如下: [0064] As shown in FIG 6, which is a specific implementation of the present embodiment provides a schematic flowchart of application information according to the second embodiment proposed, the specific process is as follows:

[0075] 实施例三(信息提供方式二) [0075] The third embodiment (the information providing two way)

[0076] 在上述信息提供方式一中,若信息搜索系统一共包含两列处理服务器,第一列处理服务器搜索到2000个信息,一共对应200个店铺,第二列处理服务器搜索到3000个信息,一共对应150个店铺,而一个店铺的商品信息可能分布在两列处理服务器中,处理服务器只选取40个店铺,第一列处理服务器可能选取店铺Α,而第二列处理服务器可能不选取店铺Α,因此第一列处理服务器发送的搜索结果中包含店铺A的搜素结果,但是第二列处理服务器发送的搜索结果中并不包含店铺A的搜索结果,因此,合并服务器就不能得到店铺A的全部信息,导致搜索信息的准确性不高。 [0076] In one embodiment the information providing, if the information search system includes a total of two processing server, the server searches the first column to process information 2000, corresponding to a total of 200 stores, in the second column to the process server 3000 search information, corresponding to a total of 150 outlets, and a commodity information store may be distributed in two processing server, the processing server 40 stores only selected, the first column selection processing server may store [alpha], and the second column may not select the processing server store [alpha] , the first column of search results contained in the processing server transmits the search results of element a in the store, but the second column of the search results sent by the processing server does not contain the search results store a, the combined server can not be obtained in the store a all information, search for information leading to the accuracy is not high. [0077] 针对上述问题,本申请实施例三提出信息提供方式二,由处理服务器对搜索到的信息进行合并后,与信息提供方式一不同,在信息提供方式二中,处理服务器不再直接将各搜索结果发送给合并服务器,而是针对合并后的每个搜索结果,分别确定该搜索结果包含的各信息按照预设的排序规则进行排序后的第一个信息,并将针对各搜索结果确定出的信息发送给所述合并服务器,也就是说处理服务器此次向合并服务器发送的只是第一规定数目个信息,合并服务器接收到各信息后,在接收到的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值中,选取第二规定数目个属性值,然后将选取出的各属性值发送给各处理服务器,也就相当于通知处理服务器需要发送合并属性的属性值为哪些属性值的搜索结果,处理服务器接收到合并服务器发送的各属性值后,在搜索到的各信 [0077] For the above-described problems, the present application is proposed according to a third embodiment of the information providing mode two, are merged by the searched information processing server, and a different way of providing the information, the information provided in the second approach, the processing server will no longer directly the combined each search result to the server, but for each search result of the merger, each of the first pieces of information of the information contained in the search result sorted according to preset sorting rule determination, and determining for each search result transmitting the combined information to the server, the server process that is sent to the merge server only after a first predetermined number of information, each information server receives combined, in each of the information received for the combined properties attribute value of each attribute, select a second predetermined number of attribute values, and then transmitted to each of the selected processing server, which also corresponds to the search result notification processing attribute value attribute server needs to send the combined attribute value, the processing When the server receives combined each attribute value sent by the server to search each channel 息中,选取出针对所述合并属性的属性值为接收到的属性值的各信息,然后根据选取出的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值,将选取出的各信息进行合并,将合并后的各搜索结果作为最终得到的各搜索结果发送给合并服务器,合并服务器根据接收到的各搜索结果包含的信息针对所述合并属性的属性值,将接收到的各搜索结果进行合并,然后将合并后的各搜索结果提供给用户。 Information, the selection information of each attribute value of the respective information value received for the merge attribute properties, and then selected according to the information for each attribute value of the combined attribute, a selection of the merging, the combined after each search each search result is sent as the final result obtained to merge server, the server comprising information combining according to each search result for the received attribute value of the combined attribute, each of the received search result to be combined, then each search result to the user after the merger.

[0078] 本申请实施例三中,合并服务器在选取第二规定数目个属性值时,可以先按照预设的排序规则,对接收到的各信息进行排序,然后根据接收到的各信息的排序结果,对接收到的各信息针对所述合并属性的属性值进行排序,再根据各属性值的排序结果,选取第二规定数目个属性值。 Example III [0078] embodiment of the present application, each of the combined information to select the second server when a predetermined number of attribute values ​​may be preset according to the sorting rule, the received sort, then the ordering of the received information according to As a result, each of the received information for ordering the attribute values ​​of the combined attribute, then the result according to the ranking of each attribute value, a second predetermined number of selected attribute values.

[0079] 本申请实施例二提出信息提供方式一中,处理服务器直接将合并后的搜索结果发送给合并服务器,而本申请实施例三提出信息提供方式二中,处理服务器先将合并后的搜索结果中的信息发送给合并服务器,然后合并服务器将需要发送的搜索结果针对合并属性的属性值发送给处理服务器,处理服务器根据接收到的属性值确定出各个搜索结果后再发送给合并服务器,这样若多个处理服务器中存在合并属性的属性值相同的信息,即使有些处理服务器未选取出该属性值,合并服务器也可以根据其他处理服务器发送的信息获知该属性值,从而通知各处理服务器分别确定该属性值对应的搜索结果,那么各处理服务器均会将该属性值对应的搜索结果发送给合并服务器,这有效地提高了搜索结果的准确性。 Example II sets [0079] The present application according to a third embodiment of the search information presented in two ways, first merge processing server information providing a way, the processing server directly transmits the search results to the merged merge server, and the application of the present embodiment send to the server the result of the merger, then merge server search results to be transmitted for the combined value of the transmission attributes to attributes processing server, the processing server according to the received value determines the properties of the respective search results then sent to the merge server, so If the same property values ​​combined attribute information exists in the plurality of processing servers, even if some of the selected processing server is not the attribute value, the server may know the combined value based on the attribute information sent from another processing server, each processing server to notify were determined the attribute value corresponding to the search results, then each process server will send the attribute value corresponding to the search results merge server, which effectively improve the accuracy of search results.

[0080] 此外,本申请实施例三提出,处理服务器收集搜索结果针对合并属性的相关信息的操作可以在得到最终的搜索结果之后执行,即处理服务器在将合并后的各搜索结果作为最终得到的各搜索结果之后,针对最终得到的每个搜索结果,分别收集该搜索结果针对所述合并属性的相关信息,并将收集到的相关信息携带在搜索结果中发送给合并服务器。 Performed after [0080] Further, the present application according to a third proposed embodiment, the processing server to collect the search results may be obtained a final search result for the operation related information combined property, i.e., processing servers in the search results will be combined as finally obtained after each search result, for each of the finally obtained search result, the search results were collected for the binder attribute information, and carries the collected information in the search results transmitted to merge server. 收集信息的过程和本申请实施例二中的过程一致,这里不再赘述。 And the information collection process of the present embodiment consistent with application of the procedure of Example II, is omitted here. 合并服务器将合并后的各搜索结果提供给用户之前,可以对合并后的各搜索结果中携带的针对所述合并属性的相关信息进行汇总,然后再提供给用户。 Each server before combining the combined search results to the user, may be related to each search result information carried in the combined for the combined attributes are aggregated, and then provided to the user. 汇总信息的过程和本申请实施例二中的过程一致,这里不再赘述。 Process summary information consistent with the present application and the procedure of Example II, is omitted here.

[0081] 在上述信息提供方式一中,处理服务器收集信息的操作在将搜索到的信息进行合并之后就执行,处理服务器发送的搜索结果中包含有收集到的信息,由于合并服务器在接收到各搜索结果后,只对其中一部分搜索结果进行合并,因此合并服务器可能并未对处理服务器发送的某些搜索结果进行合并,那么处理服务器之前对这些搜索结果进行的信息收集的操作就浪费了较多的处理资源,而本申请实施例三提出的上述信息提供方式二中,处理服务器收集信息的操作是在得到最终的搜索结果之后执行的,合并服务器将处理服务器发送的所有搜索结果进行合并后发送给用户,因此有效地节省了处理资源。 Operation [0081] In the information providing mode a, the processing server collects information on the performed after the searched information to merge the search result of the processing transmitted by the server contains information collected, mergers server receiving the respective after the search results, only part of the search results to merge, consolidate servers and therefore some searches may not be sent by the server to process the results of the merger, the information collected before the operation processing server for these search results in wasted more after processing resources, and this application according to a third proposed embodiment of the information providing mode two, the processing server operations to collect information is to obtain the final search results performed merge server will handle all of the search results sent by the server transmits the merged to the user, thus effectively saving processing resources.

[0095] 实施例四 [0095] Fourth Embodiment

[0096] 本申请实施例四提出了两种信息分配方式,具体的: Example [0096] The present application proposes two four allocation information, specific:

[0097] 信息分配方式一,在将信息搜索系统中的信息分配给各处理服务器时,可以根据信息的信息标识将信息分配到各列处理服务器中,此时合并属性的某个属性值的信息可能分布在多列处理服务器中,例如,一个店铺的商品信息可能分布在两列处理服务器中。 When the [0097] information of a distribution, information distribution system in the information search processing to each server, based on information identification information to each column allocation information processing server, in which case the value of an attribute of the combined information attribute It may be distributed in a multi-column processing server, for example, a store product information may be distributed in two processing server.

[0098] 信息分配方式二,在将信息搜索系统中的信息分配给各处理服务器时,可以根据信息针对所述合并属性的属性值将信息分配到各列处理服务器中,保证合并属性的属性值相同的信息被分配到同一列处理服务器中,也就是说,不同处理服务器得到的搜索结果中不存在合并属性的属性值相同的搜索结果。 [0098] two information distribution mode, when the information search system assigned to each information processing server, the information may be assigned the value of the attribute information to the attribute of the merge processing server in each column, to ensure the attribute property value integrating the same information processing server allocated to the same column, that is, the search results obtained by the different processing server is not present in the binder attribute values ​​of the attributes of the search results.

[0099] 当信息分配方式二应用到信息提供方式一中时,合并服务器接收到各搜索结果后,由于接收到的各个搜索结果包含的信息针对合并属性的属性值均不同,因此合并服务器无需对各搜索结果进行合并。 After [0099] When the information distribution second approach is applied to the information providing mode a, the merge server receives each search result, since the received respective search result information included in the attribute value of the combined attributes are different, so the merge server does not need to each search result to merge.

[0100] 当信息分配方式二应用到信息提供方式二中时,合并服务器接收到各处理服务器发送的信息后,由于接收到的各个信息针对合并属性的属性值均不同,因此合并服务器无需对接收到的各信息进行合并。 After [0100] When the information distribution second approach is applied to the information providing mode II, merge server receives the information on each processing server sent, since the respective information received in the attribute value of the combined attributes are different, so the merge server without receiving to the respective information merge. 此外,后续合并服务器接收到处理服务器发送的最终的搜索结果后,由于接收到的各个搜索结果针对合并属性的属性值均不同,因此合并服务器无需对各搜索结果进行合并,可以直接将接收到的各搜索结果提供给用户。 In addition, after the subsequent merge server receives the final search results of processing sent from the server, since the received respective search result for the attribute value of the combined attributes are different, so the merge server without the respective search results are combined, may be directly received each search result to the user.

[0101] 由上可见,将信息分配方式二应用到信息提供方式一或信息提供方式二,能够避免合并服务器进行搜索结果的合并操作以及信息的合并操作,因此有效地节省了处理资源。 [0101] As seen above, the allocation information is applied to the information providing two way or a two way information can be avoided and the merge operation merge server merge operation information search result, thus effectively saving processing resources.
